Hi
Well done
You did ok I think at £80 for full set as they are not often for sale
I am still looking for a return of king to make up my set if you now have a spare ?

I have just returned from an extended stay in Greece
Was walking by a used book store and couldnt believe my eyes ! In amongst all the foreign titles was a very old looking Hobbit with DJ.
Rubber burned off my soles - only the find in was a very scruffy later copy in disguise-!!!!!!!!!!!!

O well - keep searching

I know not really a directly related Tolkien suject but I was after anyones help.

I recently purchased an original Pauline Baynes drawing (some of you may have seen it at large auction house) of three pirates.

I have just received it and must say the detail is absolutely fantastic. There is a faint 'box' in pencil around the drawing and a quote underneath refering to Henry Morgan the legendary pirate.

To me it looks like it was intended as a book illustration as there are also some references noted at the bottom.

I have tried without success to try and find any images/information on any Baynes pirate illustrations.

Anyone come accross any?

Wayne - was hoping maybe you have come across some in your forthcoming Baynes book research?

Any help /info appreciated.
Thanks

Sorry camera broken otherwise i would have posted a picture!

what is going on in the world?
My thoughts/conclusions are 3 fold:
1 Bidders simply do not understand that some sellers are putting a high price in off chance some mug will bid for it without checking the rest of ebay first!

2 Bidders get carried away with battle to win

3 Foul play at work

Let you draw own conclusions
